Weekend Fun, Snow, Perfect Food, and a New Swimsuit

We decided on an impromptu two-night getaway to South Lake Tahoe. One of the highlights was definitely the “snow” (well, more like icy slush) we saw on the way. It was the first time for the toddler to see “snow!” I hadn’t realized how special seeing snow would be for the toddler (as well as for hubby) as I grew up in a cold climate with plenty of snow. I can honestly say that I don’t miss snow much, but I would like to ski again some time…

Here is some of our fun in pictures:

We also discovered a wonderful place for breakfast, Sprouts Natural Foods Café.

And the trip got even better when we stopped by the outlets on the way home, and I scored a Tommy Bahama swimsuit for 70% off.


Question: What has been the highlight of your weekend so far? 

Be well,
Andrea

  5. Wow, what a perfect getaway!! I seriously can't imagine not growing up with snow. It's so fun to see that picture of your son looking at snow for the first time. I bet he was just AMAZED!

    Today is my first (and only) day of the "weekend", so I'm going to make the most of it; workout, lay out, clean, then GRILL and relax with the family.

  13. What a fun vacation! Lake Tahoe is so beautiful. I just returned from a 5 day trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. My husband and I went for a friend's wedding and it was absolutely fantastic. Lots of mole and mezcal. Yum!

  16. Isn't it crazy that there's STILL this much snow in June? Glad the toddler got a kick out of it. I still do, too, having grown up in foggy San Francisco, where I think I experienced actual snow on the streets there twice in my life. ;)
